I have worked in the Alps since 1995 as an outdoor pursuits instructor in summer and winter. This was the 2nd property we purchased in this resort. We now own/manage loads of properties in several resorts. If you don't find what you are looking for here email me.
Tony Leece purchased this apartment in 1996
The apartment was clean & tidy and perfectly fitted the description. It is ideally located for the Ski Lift and has a great sun-trap patio. There is UK TV & WiFi and all of the appliances worked.
The apartment was great, had everything we needed and was very well laid out. The local rep, based about a minutes walk from the apartment looked after us well.
The apartments location, close to the bakery and general store made it ideal for picking up fresh produce for breakfast and other meal times.
We found Les Contamines a good base in the summer for touring the surrounding area or just taking it easy down by the swimming lake.
We will certainly be recommending this apartment to our family and friends.
Belle petite appart, pour moi et ma famille de 3 enfants et mon mari. On y est rester une semaine et on a pas etait decu.
Chambre sympas, deco sympas, salle de bains et cuisine bien equipee, dans une belle location - tres pres des remontees mechaniques, du lac, du parc de loisir et une petite superrette tres proche.
Contente de notre sejour
Fantastic location in a wonderful resort! Accurately described although it would more suit a family or party of 4 or 5 (a maximum occupancy of 7 would be a bit tight!). Location is great for the gondola to get up the mountain and very near to the shops for essentials.
The property was handed over in good order and was clean. Having access to satellite tv was a definite bonus and enabled us to replay video taken on the mountain, review skiing technique and play dvd's to relax.
The customer service was excellent and conveniently located close by. The few issues we had were dealt with promptly and efficiently.
I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends and will probably re-visit next year with my family.
Situation de l'appartement, pour skieur très bien. Départ pistes et petit centre commercial.
Le moins l'appartement lui même, trop petit ne pas être plus de 5 maxi, et encore!!. En fait il n'y a qu' une chambre très petite,t une entrée placard sans fenêtre avec 1 lit à étage gigone donc une fois ouvert impossible de bouger.Le couchage dans le salon est confortable mais pareil une fois ouvert le canapé impossible de bouger, et d'ouvrir la porte fenêtre qui permet de sortir de l'appart.
Coin repas inexistant, obliger de tout bouger les meubles pour ouvrir la table.
Cuisine très mal équipée, manque assiettes, couverts verres etc.
Par contre grande salle de bain veillote.La chasse d'eau cassée.
Terrasse agréable, mais attention à la neige qui tombe du toit un peu dengereux.
Résultat assez décevant et cher pour un appart viellot, alors qu'il ya beaucoup de choix sur la station, avec des appart plus récents et bien situés.
